Why are migrants risking death to cross the English Channel? – BBC News

More than 100 migrants have crossed the English Channel into the UK in the last month. Children as young as three are among those who have travelled from northern France in overcrowded rubber dinghies in order to seek asylum. Most claim to be from Iran.

BBC News went to Kent where locals are worried someone could soon die making the dangerous journey.
